Another user tells the tale of their own peacock horror story:
When I was about 6 we were at a zoo where they let the peacocks wander around. I was fascinated by their gorgeous colors. I don't know what possessed me, but I snuck up behind one and yanked one of its glorious tail feathers out. It jumped and whirled around, and lunged at me. I ran away, feeling like a daring hero and carried the feather around with me for the remainder of the visit and took it home with me. It stood in a corner of my room for several [years] until I lost it in a move.
The consensus among users seems to be that peacocks are malicious and aggressive.
I grew up in central Florida and there were a lot of peacocks that just roamed around. Idk if they live there naturally or if people had them as pets and they procreated or what, but those f*** are mean. They'll chase you down, attack anything, just act crazy as sh** overall. And the males (or females? Idk) aren't pretty. They are just big mean not-colorful birds. I've been chased down a handful of times by peacocks and it isn't funny. They are bigger and tougher than you realize. The plot of land my girlfriend grew up on had a few peacocks around for a while and they totally jacked her car up. They pecked and scratched and wrecked the paint on her car. I don't know why but her little red car was [the] god**** enemy. Fortunately those f*** decided to move on to some other poor schmucks land to seek and destroy like they do. F*** crazy a** birds.
